False Awakening - My Bedroom
I woke up in my bed. I seemed to sit up instantly - like something startled me. At first I thought I was really awake, but then something alerted me to the fact I was in a false awakening. I am not sure what it was - I did not have sleep paralysis. I think that everything in my room looked as it normally should - nothing out of place or odd. I tried too get out of my bed and I found that I could not get my legs out from under the covers very easily. It seemed to take me ages to get my feet onto the floor. I walked out of my room. 

Instead of walking through from my room into the lounge/kitchen area of my flat, I walked into a different room, which does not exist in reality. It looked like a large empty room and my first thought was that I was being watched. It was so dark in the room that I could barely see anything. I started worrying about what nightmarish dream character I might see. I was fully lucid, but did not feel particularly in control. For some reason, my brain kept telling me that Pennywise the Clown from IT (2017) was going to surprise me. I decided that I needed a weapon - I used dream control techniques to close my eyes and focus on/visualise having a lightsaber. I wanted to have a Sith lightsaber (red for those not familair with Star Wars lore). I was hoping to have Darth Vader's lightsaber. Instead I got Luke Skywalker's green one. I was not happy about this. The lightsaber was already activated when it appeared in my hand. 

I could now see that there were a number of strange figures/objects in the room. They looked to be 3/4 of my own height and human-shaped, but covered with white sheets (like a bad ghost fancy-dress costume). I was not sure if these were actual living beings or statues. I found myself walking through them. The room felt like a museum at this point. I started trying to attack the white-sheeted figures with the lightsaber, but nothing happened. I could not get it to even cut through the sheets. This was frustrating. 

Someone came in the room and stood in the doorway. I approached the doorway, with the lightsaber held in front of me. I could see that the person in the room was a tall man, but I could not look up to see his face for some reason. I felt scared. I swung the lightsaber at him - it should have made contact, but it seemed to just move through thin air, doing nothing. 

I woke up.
